IT service provider Lufthansa Industry Solutions, recently announced that it has implemented SIGNiT from G+D Mobile Security as a new solution for the reliable tracking of transport damage.
Lufthansa Industry Solutions provides a Detection-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering that uses the SIGNiT solution from G+D Mobile Security. It helps companies to reliably track, by means of IoT data, where goods have been damaged in transit. This way, customers can optimize their logistics chains and prevent similar damage in the future.
“SIGNiT allows to easily digitize processes in a decentralized ecosystem. Our Damage Detection sensors can identify exactly where damage occurred during transport. Our aim is to achieve significant ROI improvements of 70 percent.”
– Holger Schlueter, Associate Director IoT at Lufthansa Industry Solutions
SIGNiT from G+D Mobile Security enables Lufthansa Industry Solutions to ensure that IoT data is 100% trustworthy. SIGNiT combines proven SIM environments and secure operating systems by G+D Mobile Security with the blockchain technology from the Cologne-based start-up Ubirch.
Ubirch has developed a trust protocol, which ensures that data from IoT sensors can’t be falsified after their generation. The data packets of these sensors are sealed with strong cryptography in a way that it becomes technically impossible to manipulate them once stored in a blockchain. This combination of offering blockchain on a SIM is unique and the first of its kind.
“Our vision is to secure IoT data directly at their source. SIGNiT from G+D Mobile Security takes this vision to a whole new level. The product offers an easily scalable plug-in solution for powerful IoT security.”
– Stephan Noller, CEO at Ubirch
The main challenge of digitalization
With SIGNiT, G+D Mobile Security addresses one of the main challenges of digitalization: the dependence of IoT-based business models on the integrity of their data streams. SIGNiT offers an efficient, scalable and cost-effective way to 100% trusted IoT data, opening the door to many new IoT business models.
Manufacturers of IoT-enabled devices, no matter if industrial machines or consumer devices, can easily protect connected Industry 4.0 and 5G applications. Insurers can implement scenarios in which IoT data set off fully automated payments.
In combination with the new 5G standard, SIGNiT has the potential to become a game-changer for the connected industry and all types of business models that rely on trusted IoT data.
“The business models of the future will all depend on data. With SIGNiT we are solving the most critical challenge of these ecosystems: trustworthy data for all digitized processes.”
